Happy New Year!

OMGosh! It has been a hectic holiday season! But I must admit, it was totally self-imposed. It appeared the shopping was all done quickly just after Thanksgiving and the quilt I was making for a dear friend was coming along nicely, so apparently it was necessary to stir up some stress. Soooo, I heaped a couple more projects onto the Christmas "make" list. This included a Mariner's Compass (which was already started) for my step-mother and a table runner for a friend. I forgot to take pictures of the table runner which is a bummer since I thought the colors and fabrics were so pretty. But I do have photos of the other 2 projects.

First is the front and back of a quilt I made for a good friend.  We had been separated for several years and now we are friends again. I wanted to make her something special for her December birthday. She, like me, loves purple. I had purchased these stack and whack blocks from and had every intention of making this for myself, but making it for Linda was a better idea!

 This is the back of the quilt..
This is the small quilt I made for my step-mother. It's a little Mariner's Compass that I started in a class with my BFF in April. It was good to get another project crossed off the list! I think that's all of 3 including my Baby Jane. Perhaps 2012 will see me getting more projects done!

Here's what's currently on my design wall... and there are 2 other quilts besides this that I'm hoping to get done very soon!

Okay, that's it for now!
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed 2012!
